Light rain will develop this evening and fall near-freezing elevated surface northwest of Columbus, potentially creating a few slippery spots, until temperatures rise a few degrees later tonight.

High pressure provided sunshine on a seasonably cold January day, with temperatures topping out in the mid- to upper 30s, more than 15 degrees warmer than Friday.

Skies will be overcast tonight ahead of a cold front in a light southerly flow that will hold temperatures nearly steady. Look for rain to continue Sunday morning, before tapering off to midday showers behind a cold front. There could be enough cold air to allow for a brief wintry mix in the north as the moisture comes to an end, outside of a few afternoon and evening flurries.

Another blast of arctic air will get us off to a cold start early in the week, followed by a midweek warm-up. The next chance for a few light showers will occur ahead of a cold front late Thursday. A larger storm could impact the region next weekend with a wintry mix.
